The commentator for the NJPW G1 Special, Jim Ross, recently appeared on Busted Open Radio and provided his thoughts on the upcoming NJPW G1 Special-event. (July 1st-2nd). This is New Japan’s first live-televised event in the United States during a “normal” time of day & is shaping up to be a great follow up from their “Dominion” event.
Here’s what JR had to say on Cody vs. Kazuchika Okada for the IWGP Heavyweight Championship:
“I think it’s a good booking, Cody needs this match, he needs to show everybody exactly where he is since leaving the WWE, because I believe, that eventually, Cody will make a triumphant return to WWE, a much better performer and business man than he was when he left and he will make a major impact. But right now, it’s a great place to see where he is in that evolution. Whether I’m right or I’m wrong, this is a big match for him and of course, Okada got that pressure that he seemingly now has to have a five star like match everyone outing and that’s damn hard to do.”
